STATEHOUSE – Hoosiers seeking a better-paying job can use the state’s new Hoosier Talent Network website to match to 1 of more than 135,000 job openings, according to State Rep. Cindy Ziemke .
Indiana Department of Workforce Development’s new online tool located at in.gov/dwd connects individuals searching for work directly to employers in their desired location. Companies that are hiring can also use the website to connect with candidates.
According to Ziemke, the platform is powered by artificial intelligence and can understand a job seeker’s skills and capabilities to match them to relevant jobs. To get started, Hoosiers create a profile by answering basic questions about themselves, which takes about 5 minutes. Job recommendations will appear based on qualifications and capabilities. Applications can be submitted through the website or company career sites.
“It can be hard for Hoosiers looking for work or seeking a career change if they don’t know where to start or where their skills could be put to use,” Ziemke said. “Creating a profile is quick and free, and it could be the first step toward finding a new job or profession.”
Ziemke encourages local Hoosiers to visit in.gov/dwd to connect to the Hoosier Talent Network, and other education and training resources.
